This morning General Hospital Daytime Emmy winners will be participating in a television exclusive when they appear in segments on the ABC morning show, The View!

After much speculation as to why Daytime Emmy winning ABC talent was not allowed to participate in what has now become a annual post- Emmy tradition on the CBS afternoon series The Talk, where they welcome they welcome last night’s big winners, it all becomes clear now.

The View will welcome direct from the set of the ABC soap opera in Los Angeles newly crowned Daytime Emmy winners: Anthony Geary (Luke), Maura West (Ava), Chad Duell (Michael) and Donna Mills (Madeline)!

If you miss the live airing today at 11AMET/10AMPT, the episode will also be available to watch online daily at 4:00 p.m., ET/1:00 p.m., PT on ABC.com.

What do you think about The View having the GH Daytime Emmy winners on their show live from the set of the daytime drama series and thus not participating on The Talk?  Smart competitive move? Weigh-in below!

    You would think that ABC would want as much publicity for the show as they could get, not letting the actors do the TALK does seem petty and really makes no sense.

    Geary said on The View that he told Valentini that he wanted to explore Luke’s dark side. But Fluke wasn’t Luke’s dark side when the story started and according to Geary, he was informed of the change when he got back from his surgery. Is Geary trying to do damage control after he let the cat out of the bag that the story was changed, ( makes no sense since you can’t close the barn door after you let the horse out) or did he just misspeak by saying he wanted to explore Luke’s dark side, when he meant he just wanted to play dark?

    That is exactly what Geary is trying to do, AJQ. As much as I enjoyed the interview, as Geary did conduct himself with poise, he made a complete turnabout.
    I always trust everything you write as being close to the truth as possible. You always point out what many overlook……and, I agree with you.

    That is kind of weird, robert.

    Didn’t realize Maura had such a sense of humor.
    Everyone was great on THE VIEW.
    I thought Chad was so cute…he got a little nervous…stumbled a bit when posed a question…how human of him….LOL.

    It’s a cross-promotion thing. ABC owns, produces & airs both GH & THE VIEW. Actors from any ABC shows are usually interviewed only on ABC-related talk shows, like Jimmy Kimmel in the evening and THE VIEW in the morning. This is the way it’s been done for a long time because networks do not want to promote a show from a competing network or company. The exceptions are actors from series that air on the FOX or CW networks, which don’t have comparable talk shows in daytime or evening. Their actors & shows are frequently promoted by ABC, NBC & CBS talk shows because they are popular with the younger age group, and bring in higher ratings.

    Talk about trying to create controversy out of nothing. ABC has the Emmy winning actors from GH appear on their own network’s daytime talk show, as opposed to the daytime talk show of another network. Nothing petty whatsoever about that. It’s just common sense. Having the GH people on The View was great publicity for the show.

    I feel the major networks should be ashamed for not wanting to air the Daytime Emmys. Most of the winners were from one of the three (ABC, CBS, NBC). So many viewers missed the show because of that. The longevity is in daytime, what don’t they get. The View, The Talk, The Chew, next up The Few (fall of the networks).

    Lita, if you could see the ratings when the Daytime Emmys were broadcast on prime time, you’d understand. I’ve said it before – TV is NOT a charity. Every single minute of broadcast time is calculated profit for a network. The DE’s aren’t broadcast because the ratings were not good, and advertisers refuse to spend premium dollars for a show that doesn’t hit their most preferred demographic (young adults, ages 18-39). If the advertisers won’t spend the money to support the show, there isn’t a show.

    It doesn’t become clear to me. Why are the winners not allowed on the set?

    GH is filmed in Los Angeles. I think all the soaps are. But, THE VIEW is filmed in NYC. It’s physically impossible to win the Emmy (the ceremony took place in L.A.) late Sunday night, and show up at THE VIEW’s studio the next morning. To interview all the GH winners, they just did a live telecast from the set of GH because most of the actors (& exec producer, Frank Valentini) were working.

    Since, the view airs in New York City and General Hospital airs in Los Angeles, I dont think the winners would have time to fly to LA in time for the interview.

    Shameless. Nobody hardly watches the View anymore, so to lure GH fan base to that show in order to see these interviews they ban those honorees from attending CBS celebrations. This isn’t about celebrating GH, this about promoting the View and ABC– not unexpected, but comes across as petty.

    It’s to be expected…The View and The Talk are in competition. What really bothers me is that none of the “big three” networks had anything on their morning shows the day after about the winners. I made it a mission to jump from one to the other, and check their online page. They may mention them later, like The View, but still surprising since they all had winners, including their soaps. They do morning after for every other award show…and there are now a zillion of those now. Just another snub of shows that have been airing for years, their fans, as well as actors and writers who deliver shows 5 days a week, all year, without taking time out for mid-season finales. They can’t even find room in their schedules to air the awards on network TV, even if only for 1 hr, split the costs, or a Saturday afternoon…oops this might cut in on some sporting event.

    P.S. And at least The View is on in the morning, unlike The Talk which completes with, and is on when GH airs is on my market.

    I love THE VIEW, Rose….I don’t care how much others hate it. So, okay, THE TALK puts on a good show…but, it is a carbon copy, nonetheless. I like the real thing.
    What bothers me the most is how people demean the panel’s intelligence on THE VIEW….or demonize Whoopi. She is a wonderful, charitable and very altruistic human being.
    Not one of the ladies on THE TALK can hold a candle to the intellect , humanitarianism and expertise shown by the ladies of THE VIEW.

    “CeeCee”

    “Thank You”

    this season… brought me back to “The View”

    YES : LOL

    Rosie O has moved on again… but… I am just thoroughly enjoying Whoopie’ chutzpa this season… and …. Rosie Perez… hardly stammers at all… she’s progressed

    and YES… I have to prompt…People of color … but these two ladies… make the show, for me… I don’t even mind Nicole… I think it works that “she” is given airtime to “prompt” or “aid” the republican agenda… LOL it still doesn’t come across as any thing i’d consider.
    Nicole is actually enjoying herself… imagine that…. LOL

    Why wouldn’t ABC want their stars to be exclusively on their talk show The View instead of the competition The Talk. Its a business thing nothing to do with being petty.

    Right on, Sean. That is exactly the “thing”.

    Charday, THE TALK is all about sensationalism, that’s why.

    Ok , folks Days stars were on the talk too & there from NBC. So what is y’all answer to that Abc supporters. The view has not been the same since Barbara & Joy left.

    As I said, no one knows what goes on behind the scenes. Perhaps NBC had no representation, and since DOOL is filmed in LA, as is Y&R and THE TALK, it was easiest to arrange.
    I watch all three soaps, DOOL, Y&R and GH…. I love all three. I do not pick and choose…
